I'm Having Trouble Getting My Morning Readings Down. How Can I Help This?

I'm Having Trouble Getting My Morning Readings Down. How Can I Help This?

We eat our biggest meal around 6 PM. I've been told to eat a snack around 10pm. What makes a good snack? What else can I do?

I like having raw unsalted almonds as a snack at night!

Hi, well my husband and I were introduced to the JJ Smith 10day Green smoothie cleanse and it has been excellent. My blood sugars have been excellent after losing 30 lbs. My husband on the other hand has lost 60 lbs and have been taken off his insulin and cut back on his oral blood glucose meds. It was a struggle to get him to even consider doing it but now he swears by it. We continue to follow her diet plan and we are sustaining our wt loss.

I was told by my NHS dieticIan out liver produces glucose whilst sleeping that's why readings varies so much in the mornings.I found out upon waking up after 8 hours sleep is better to eat something otherwise if i get too hungry staying in bed reading as you do my liver again released glucose to compensate which elevates my fasting readings

Now another scenario for everyone: I am now taking my .05mg Glipizide at bedtime, seems to being helping my a.m. tremendously (94-110) for the past two weeks. I am also on 1500mg Metformin per day. I did the "home A1C Test this morning", and my results were 7.0 (still), also working on that 21Day Sugar Detox program as much as I can. Any suggestions on getting that 7.0 in the 6 range???? All suggestions are welcomed! Thank you

I made some yogurt bites as a snack but I never snack after 8pm that usually helps with my morning readings and drink alot of water
